People are beginning to casually talk about the “trauma” in their lives on social media in a way they shouldn’t.  #TraumaTok, a TikTok hashtag with over 615 million views, allows creators to recount traumatic experiences in their lives to their followers using something called “casual therapy speak.” Creators on TikTok post content that allows their […]
